COMMENTARY OF THE DAY

The US economy has fallen short. Government is force. Most every law takes away a little of our money or freedom or both.
The Heritage Foundation ranks economic freedom across the globe. The United States once ranked No. 4 in the world, but we’ve been in decline. This year, we’re 25th. “If you care about living a prosperous life, you should care about what government economic policies are,” says the Heritage Foundation’s Derrick Morgan. The foundation ranks countries’ economic freedom based on things like rule of law, regulatory efficiency, open markets, fiscal health, etc.
he big reason the USA fell in the rankings is that Congress spends so much more money than government can squeeze out of us in taxes. I say to Morgan, “‘Free childcare, free this, free that!’ That sounds good for my freedom.” “Sooner or later, you run out of other people’s money,” Morgan responds. “More dollars chasing fewer goods leads to inflation,” and inflation leaves us less financial freedom.
In addition, politicians ban some of our choices, like future natural gas hookups and gas-powered cars. On top of that, America’s bureaucrats add thousands of regulations, most of which restrict individual freedom. “Those are examples of our smothering government and why we keep dropping places,” says Morgan.
The world’s least free countries have even more smothering governments. India ranks toward the bottom of the freedom list because Indian bureaucrats are empowered to decide whether entrepreneurs may try something new. Investors must get up to 70 different approvals. No wonder India stays poor. It could be worse. The most repressed people in the world are trapped in countries at the bottom of the freedom list: Sudan, Venezuela, Cuba and, of course, North Korea. “It’s bad in the economic sphere just as it is in the political sphere,” says Morgan. “These things reinforce each other. The freer a country is economically, the better off they are.” Hong Kong was a great example of how economic freedom makes life better.
